AirPremium Briefs: Breathable Adult Diapers With Tabs Offering Up to 6 Hours of Protection

couple going furniture shopping while managing incontinence

It's a sunny Saturday afternoon. A couple prepares for a shopping trip, grabbing their masks as they walk toward the entrance of a furniture store. Steve and his wife Jan need a new desk for their home office.

When COVID-19 impacted their lives, they turned the spare bedroom into a work space. Now papers and files are scattered all around and it is time to try and get organized. 

However, Jan is experiencing urinary incontinence from a recent surgery and just started using adult diapers with tabs. Going to work a few days a week has been a challenge and outings such as this one to find a desk is particularly daunting.

Steve and Jan browse for a couple of hours. So many choices ... oak to match the woodwork, white to match the doors or black to reflect their style. Jan is wearing plastic-backed adult diapers with tabs to help with moderate urinary and occasional bowel incontinence. Walking around the store in a jacket for so long is causing her to perspire and feel lightheaded. After feeling her diaper swell, she looks at Steve with a look of fright. He is talking with a salesperson so she decides to text.

"We have to go! NOW!"

She feels warmth and a bit of heaviness and knows that it's time for a change. And then she forgot to bring a backup diaper and home is over 30 minutes away.

Steve feels the phone's vibration in his pocket, looks and abruptly ends the conversation about rolltop versus standard styles. He looks at Jan, nods and follows her out of the store ... without a dresser.

Do you or someone you love find yourself worry about having an accident in public and needing to leave quickly?

When using adult diapers with tabs, it's important individuals find a product that offers the right amount of protection and is comfortable – especially when individuals are out for long periods of time.
